Thiruvananthapuram: In view of resentment among a section of party workers over candidate selection coming out in the open, BJP Kerala leadership has warned of stringent action against those making critical remarks openly.

BJP state president K Surendran said that all should be cautious while using words. 'Wait and watch,' Surendran told reporters to queries on whether BJP new entrant former Kerala Congress leader P C George would face action for bad mouthing BJP Pathanamthitta candidate and Congress veteran leader A K Antony's son Anil K Antony.

Surendran also said that BJP decided to field Anil Antony at Pathanamthitta as he would be a highly competent candidate for Pathanamthitta.

George, who was eyeing the Pathanamthitta seat, had flayed that Anil Antony was not a familiar candidate at Wayanad. He had also said that he would work for 'any broom' being fielded by BJP.

Karshaka Morcha district president Shyam Thattayil, who made a social media post criticising Anil's candidature, was expelled from the party on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Anil Antony called on P C George on Monday and George also offered sweets to him. George said that being Congress leader A K Antony's son, Anil is known to all. He also said that he would campaign for him.
